Natural Awakenings Boston

Boston GreenFest Returns to City Hall Plaza


Boston GreenFest 2012 will be held at City Hall Plaza from August 16 to August 19. The festival provides opportunities for people to exchange knowledge, products and services in all areas of green living, including health and wellness, water, energy, transportation and fashion.

“It’s a unique event that unites people for learning and fun while finding solutions to make our lives and our city greener,” says Dr. Karen Weber, executive director of Boston GreenFest.
“Bostonians are keenly aware of the critical challenges we face with regard to our environment, our health and the everyday decisions we make. They should come out for GreenFest and bring others along, as there’s something to learn and do for people of all ages and backgrounds.”

The event features a GreenFilmFest, an EcoBazaar, a Food Emporium and a new EcoTerrace serving sustainably crafted wine and beer.

This year’s festival features preview events on August 11, on the Greenway and at Spectacle Island, in Boston Harbor; and on August 12, at the Strand Theater, in Dorchester. GreenFest is partnering with The Movement Festival to offer free dance and movement classes to the public on August 19. “We’ll also have the MIT Fab Lab on site, ecoArt that will astonish and ecoFashion that will amaze,” says Weber.
